Can 'Spectre' and 'Peanuts' End the Fall Box Office Slump?

3 November 2015 8:59 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The past two weekends have been good for 20th Century Fox's The Martian at the box office, but they have been simply horrid for any newcomer that dares challenge it. Last weekend, The Martian won with just $11.4 million, as high-profile new releases such as Burnt and Our Brand Is Crisis pulled in dismal numbers, and another new release, Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, failed to even crack the top 10. This weekend only brings two new movies to theaters in wide release, Spectre and The Peanuts Movie, both of which are expected to bring new life to the sagging box office this weekend.

According to the projections from, Spectre is expected to take in a whopping $90 million, with The Peanuts Movie projected to take a distant second place with a respectable $47 million opening weekend tally. If Spectre hits or exceeds its projection, its opening weekend will be higher »

29 October 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

When Tom Cruise finds a director he likes, he sticks to them like glue. The actor has collaborated with some of the finest filmmakers in his career: Stanley Kubrick (Eyes Wide Shut), Paul Thomas Anderson (Magnolia), Steven Spielberg (Minority Report), Cameron Crowe (Jerry Maguire), and Michael Mann (Collateral), to name a few. One of his most rewarding collaborations from the past few years […]

French Film, TV Execs Debate Industry Challenges, Prospects At Arp Confab

25 October 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris– Canal Plus Group’s CEO Maxime Saada, Gaumont Intl. boss Cecile Gaget, “The Artist” helmer Michel Hazanavicius and the Cnc’s (National Film Board) Xavier Lardou were among the top film execs at the 25th edition of the Rencontres Cinematographiques confab hosted by the Arp (authors, directors, producers’ guild) in Dijon, France.

The conference marked Saada’s first high-profile debate since being tapped CEO of Canal Plus Group, the Vivendi-owned pay TV giant, in July.

Saada, who attended the first debate of the confab on Oct. 23 along with Gaget, Hazanavicius and French producer Mathieu Tarot, said Canal Plus Group and its film banner Studiocanal were to invest more in development to encourage producers to come up with stronger scripts and venture more often into genre, tackle more ambitious projects.

Although Canal Plus Group signed a five-year agreement last May to invest 12.5% of annual revenues in French or other-European films »

Magnolia, Duplass Brothers Launch First Oscar Campaign for Transgender Actresses (Exclusive)

6 October 2015 2:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tangerine,” Sean Baker’s Sundance darling about two transgender prostitutes on a Christmas Eve jaunt through Los Angeles, might not seem like your typical Oscar movie. But against the backdrop of the Emmys recognizing Laverne Cox’s performance in “Orange is the New Black” in 2014, Magnolia Pictures and the Duplass brothers, who produced “Tangerine,” are launching an Oscar campaign for the indie, Variety has learned. It’s the first time a movie distributor has ever backed an awards season push for a transgender actress in Hollywood history.

In fact, “Tangerine” features two breakout transgender stars. Magnolia will be trumpeting newcomer Kitana Kiki Rodriguez in the best actress category and Mya Taylor, who Baker met at a Lgbt center just as she was transitioning, for best supporting actress.

The scrappy campaign — which is forgoing traditional “For Your Consideration” advertising — will officially kick off on Tuesday night, during an Academy conversation with the Duplass brothers, »

When can you see Paul Thomas Anderson's newest film in a theater?

6 October 2015 2:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Surprisingly, there will be a new Paul Thomas Anderson film in theaters from October 16th to October 22nd. That's this month. If you are as baffled as I was when I opened the e-mail, let me assure you that you did not accidentally black out and forget an entire announced project. Instead, this is a new video called "Divers," built around the song by Joanna Newsom and the artwork of Kim Keever, and it's being released exclusively to theaters to count down to the release of Newsom's new album, also called "Divers." Newsom appeared in Anderson's most recent film, "Inherent Vice," playing a role that spurred some fascinating conversations with other fans of the film, and she's a remarkable vocalist as well. Anderson directed the first video from her album, "Sapokanikan," and I've watched it four or five times now. It's a challenging song, and Newsom's performance is so vulnerable »

Interview with Director Junya Sakino

12 September 2015 2:31 PM, PDT | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »


Junya Sakino is a new japanese director, that has previously worked as a cinematographer and producer, both in Japan and the Us. On the occasion of the release of his first feature film, Sake Bomb he answered some of my questions. I will not get into further details about him as the interview is quite biographical

First of all, I would like to congratulate you on your first feature film, Sake bomb. Could you tell us a bit about the path that brought you from Japan to the U.S and the making of this movie.?

I was born and raised in Japan and decided to move to Los Angeles to purse a filmmaking career. It’s not that I didn’t consider staying in Japan, but it made sense for me that there were a lot of universities that offered film studies, so my natural instinct was just to »

Patton Oswalt lands role alongside Tom Hanks and Emma Watson in The Circle

12 September 2015 2:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The already diverse cast of James Ponsoldt’s The Circle just got even more interesting, as Deadline reports that actor/comedian Patton Oswalt has come on board the 2016 film.

Although best known for his stand-up, Oswalt has appeared in various films and TV shows over the past two decades. While he has played a handful of smaller roles in such projects as Magnolia, Man on the Moon, Zoolander, Starsky & Hutch, Community and SpongeBob SquarePants, he is also known for his larger parts in such projects as The King of Queens, Big Fan, Ratatouille and Young Adult.

[The film is] about a college graduate who goes to work at The Circle, an Internet monopoly that links users’ personal emails, social media, banking and purchasing with their universal operating system. The result is one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency — which turns out not to always be a good thing.

Box Office: ‘War Room’ Rules Slow Labor Day With $12.6 Million

7 September 2015 8:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Religious crowds pulled off a “great awakening” at the Labor Day box office, raising low-budget “War Room” above “Straight Outta Compton” and reaffirming the value of producing pictures for faith-based moviegoers.

The $3 million production from brothers Alex Kendrick and Stephen Kendrick brought in $12.6 million over the four-day holiday. The film has earned $27.9 million and is on track to be the biggest hit of the Kendricks’ careers, passing “Courageous” ($34.5 million) and “Fireproof” ($33.4 million). It arrives in theaters courtesy of Sony’s Affirm division.

War Room’s” success was one of the only bright spots in an otherwise torpid weekend at the multiplexes. Overall ticket sales are still being calculated, but it is shaping up to be one of the worst Labor Day holidays over the past decade.

That poor showing is because newcomers like Europacorp’s “Transporter Refueled” failed to generate much heat, snagging fifth place and $9 million at the box office. »

John C. Reilly to star in Jacques Audiard’s first English-language film

25 August 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jacques Audiard, the French filmmaker behind A Prophet and Rust and Bone, has announced his first English-language film, a western set to star John C. Reilly.

Speaking on radio station Rtl whilst promoting his new film Dheepan, the 63-year-old director announced his intention to make an English-language film and that Reilly, famed for his roles in Boogie Nights, Magnolia and Step Brothers, will be his star.

The film will be an adaptation of author Patrick deWitt’s 2011 novel The Sisters Brothers, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. The novel tells the story of “two brothers hired to murder a prospector during the California Gold Rush. They travel from Oregon City to San Francisco, only to find out that the man they’ve been sent to kill may have something better to offer.” The book has received numerous awards in Canada and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. »

Should cinemas have switched to digital?

20 August 2015 1:22 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Digital projection is meaning cleaner and more stable pictures on the big screen.

Have you noticed anything different in the past few years of visiting your local multiplex? No more Harry Potter films every year mainly, but more fundamentally than that – does the screen look cleaner and more stable than usual? None of the scratches and jitter that you always used to see?

You’re witnessing the results of cinema's digital switchover, just another step our lives have taken from the analogue into the digital world. It’s maybe something many haven’t thought about too much, as they sit back, munch popcorn and drink gallons of Fanta while watching dozens of blockbusters.

But considering how many people are affected by it and its impact on how cinemas are run, maybe we should be asking: what’s wrong with this picture?

Since the film-digital debate is kind of technical, just »

It Takes a Muscle: De Jong’s Debut a Vibrant Entry in Familiar Genre

So perhaps there is a room for a bit of inventiveness in the continual exploration of the bildungsroman, at least evidenced by Dutch director Sam de Jong’s directorial debut Prince. Heavily stylized with flourishes of impressive editing and an energetic soundtrack fluctuating between hypnotic electro beats, crooning vintage tracks, and a synthesized menace promising more detrimental events than the film actually delivers, this exploration of life in Amsterdam’s low income housing projects recalls the influences of works by Refn and Antonio Campos, at least as far its power for brooding male leads struggling through an increasingly apathetic universe. Ultimately, de Jong proves to be less interested in the provocations his tone would otherwise indicate, surprisingly crafting a sweet natured portrait of conflicted adolescence.

Tom Cruise, actor, filmmaker and professional stunt man

10 August 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Tom Cruise has come a very long way since his screen debut in Franc Zeffirelli’s Endless Love (1981). Thirty six movies and a whole lot of stardom later and he’s still the biggest movie star on the planet. He is perhaps, also the biggest film star in movie history. You’d be hard pushed to offer up any other actor that’s sustained that level of popularity and box office pull for that long. There is a good reason for this too. Cruise polarises opinion of course and there are those that would see his downfall, but in large part that’s due to all things that have little if nothing to do with Tom Cruise the filmmaker.

Being Tom Cruise must take a special kind of energy. So special in fact that he has sustained that level of dash for nigh on thirty years without letting up. And if Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, »

10 Essential Tom Cruise Movies

7 August 2015 4:17 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Like most talented performers who’ve doubled as quintessential movie stars, Tom Cruise doesn’t always get the chance to demonstrate that he can actually act. There’s often just too much Tom Cruise in the way for people to notice, especially when he lets his erratic personal life take center stage. Putting together an “essential” list for such an actor is a bit of a tightrope act, walking the line between crowd pleasing star turns and performances of real substance. That said, here are ten Tom Cruise films that are not to be missed:

Risky Business (1983) – The early 80s were awash in teen sex comedies, most of which have justifiably faded from memory. Then there’s Risky Business, which not only rose above the pack, but made an indelible mark on pop culture history. It wasn’t Tom Cruise’s first movie, but it might as well have been: »

Box Office Sabermetrics: Tom Cruise’s Batting Average

5 August 2015 12:20 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Box Office Sabermetrics is a weekly column that will attempt to apply the statistical analysis Sabermetrics, used in Baseball, to the box office results each weekend.

One of my favorite books, and favorite movies of the decade, is Moneyball. Telling the story of how A’s General Manager Billy Beane and his front office used statistical analytics – called Sabermetrics – to put together a winning team off a low budget and undervalued players. I’ve always enjoyed that side of Baseball, how integral we evaluate statistics is to the sport, so I thought it was high time I brought it to how we evaluate movies. Given that film is a subjective medium, the only real hard statistic we have to evaluate is box office returns. So, each week I will be taking a look at the weekend numbers and seeing what Baseball statistics have to say about them.

Tom Cruise: A Retrospective

1 August 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Anyone growing into pop culture consciousness during the mid-2000s will be familiar with a certain type of Tom Cruise, one labeled with some criticism in a recent Buzzfeed article as “Tom Cruise 2.0.” To them, Tom Cruise may have first become familiar as Ethan Hunt in the first Mission: Impossible movie, as an action star who, in spite of fearful insurance agents and publicists, prefers to do his own stunts—especially if they include declaring maniacal love for Katie Holmes atop Oprah Winfrey’s couch. He was probably their first introduction to the alien world of Scientology, or perhaps already known as the face of another hero thrust into the supernatural, having once served as the model for the titular character in Disney’s Aladdin.

This Tom Cruise, in spite of several critical successes in the past 10 years, has yet to shake completely the straws of tabloid fodder that prick up every time someone dares, »
